Does a Salary Really Equal No Right to Overtime Pay?

The payment of overtime wages is controlled by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA states that as a general rule, employees who work more than 40 hours per week must be paid one and a half times their regular rate of pay for all excess hours worked in that week. Many employers and employees believe that as long as they pay or are paid a salary, rather than by the hour, they don't have to pay or are not entitled to be paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. This is incorrect.
